In 1930 the Chico Memorial Mausoleum was erected to serve
the needs of the community. Since then, new corridors have been added, creating Chico's only exclusive indoor
mausoleum and columbarium. Upon entering the mausoleum, you are greeted with a sweeping wall mural of the Last
Supper, and as you proceed past each corridor, there are beautiful stained glass windows, each with their own story.
The columbarium offers marble, bronze and glass face niches, and the mausoleum's exquisite Italian marble provides a
beautiful, lasting memory for family members down through the ages. For those who prefer clean, dry, and permanent
memorials, Chico Memorial Mausoleum is the area's finest. The choice for mausoleum burial is increasing, thus we
have an exciting new expansion plan for the near future.
